BBC大学校园英语:12 Reboot! 重启电脑!

Narrator: Hello. It's time again for English at University - the series that teaches some English phrases to help you through your first year of study abroad. Mary's been set some work – to write an assignment about business. Always studious and keen to do well, she's getting on with it in the peace and quiet of the library.

大家好,又到了“大学校园英语”栏目——这个系列节目会教给你一些国外留学第一年用得上的实用句型。玛丽已经开始学习——要写一篇关于商业的作业。一贯勤奋认真做好作业的她已经开始在安静的图书馆开始着手做作业了。

Mary: ...so good business needs a good plan. Hmmm.

那么一项好的商业活动需要一个好的商业计划,嗯。

Daniel: Oh hi Mary. Beavering away?

哦,嗨,玛丽。正在发奋呢?

Mary: Hello Daniel. Well we have got an assignment to write.

你好,丹尼尔。我们可是有作业要写。

Daniel: Yeah but we've still got three days and I work best when the pressure's on. Blimey, your laptop's a bit ancient isn't it?

没错,但是我们还有三天呢,而且有压力的时候我做的最好。哎呀,你电脑是不是有点儿老古董了?

Mary: It's a new one actually and it does me just fine. Look at what I've done so far... oh no! It's frozen. If I push the arrow here nothing moves. Oh dear and I haven't saved it yet.

这其实是新的,用起来还不错。看看我到目前为止做的……哦,不!它卡住了。按这个键,但是什么都不动了。哦天呐,我还没保存呢。

Daniel: Proved my point eh? I've got one of those Macpad Fabs – brilliant – fast processor, huge memory, almost does the assignment for you. Anyway, look what you've got to do is just reboot – press this button here... wait a few seconds and ....

我说的没错吧?我有一台Mac——超级棒——超快处理器,大内存,完全可以拿来做作业。话说回来,你需要的只是重启——按这个键……等几秒钟,然后……

Mary: Nothing. Everything's disappeared! Daniel, what have you done?

什么都没有。所有的东西都没了!丹尼尔,你都干了什么?

Narrator: What has he done indeed? Idiot! You've been so diligent – you've worked hard – to get this assignment done, I think you're going to need some help to get it back.

他到底干什么了!傻子!你那么勤奋——那么努力——去把作业做完,我觉得你需要一点帮助去把它找回来。

Mary: I know. But I know nothing about technology, what questions should I ask?

我知道,但是我一点都不懂技术,我该问什么问题?

Narrator: Don't panic. You need to find someone who knows a bit about technology and say 'I seem to have lost my work, what can I do?' or 'do you think you can restore my work please?', or say 'I turned my computer off and didn't back up my work, is there anything you can do?' – even if it was Daniel's fault. Go and see if you can get some help.

别着急。你得找个懂点技术的人,然后问他“我好像弄丢了文件,我该怎么办?”或者是“请问你觉得你能帮我恢复文件吗?”再或者是“我把电脑关了,但是我没保存文件,请问你能帮我吗?”——即便那完全是丹尼尔的错。去看看你能不能寻求到什么帮助。

Mary: OK, I will. Oh look, there's that technology student over there. I'll ask him.

好的,我去问问看。哦,看,是那天那个技术男。我问问他吧。

Daniel: I don't think he's going to know what to do...

我觉得他才不知道该怎么办……

Mary: ...excuse me. Do you remember me from the Study Skills session?

……打扰一下。我们上次那个学习技巧讲座见过,你还记得我吗?

Tech Student: Oh, yes I do. I never forget anyone who uses an Acorn Fastbook 5.4 laptop.

哦,我记得你。我可忘不了有谁还用橡子快本5.4寸的笔记本电脑。

Mary: Yes, good. Well I've got a problem... Daniel has turned off my laptop and I seem to have lost my work, what can I do?

那太好了。我遇到了点麻烦……丹尼尔把我电脑关了,好像弄丢了我的作业文件,我该怎么办?

Daniel: I was just trying to reboot it.

我只是想重启电脑。

Tech Student: Hmm. That's a silly thing to do. Let me have a look.

嗯,那可真够蠢的。我来看看。

Mary: Thanks. Do you think you can restore my work?

谢谢你,你觉得你能帮我恢复文件吗?

Tech Student: Did you back up your work?

你保存了吗?

Mary: Err well no, not before I... I mean Daniel, switched it off. Is there anything you can do?

额,没有,在我……我是说丹尼尔,把电脑关了之前没有。你能帮忙吗?

Tech Student: Oh dear. Well if I do this... ah there bingo! Luckily it was saved on the laptop memory. An impressive 24 gigabytes of RAM in fact. I'd advise you to back it up onto this memory stick.

哦,天。那么如果我这么做……啊,看,搞定!幸运的是,文件存在了笔记本的内存上。实际上24G的RAM内存表现不错。我建议你在这个U盘上再备份一次。

Daniel: It's alright mate, she can use mine.

没事的,伙计,她用我的就好。

Mary: Thanks so much err?

谢谢你,你是……?

Tech Student: Malcolm. You're welcome. How about having a drink tonight?

马尔科姆。不客气。今天晚上要不要喝一杯?

Mary: Sorry I can't. I've got to study.

对不起,我不去了,我得学习。

Narrator: Well done Malcolm and well done Mary for asking for help. You got yourself out of a tricky situation by asking these questions...

马尔科姆干的漂亮,玛丽求助做的也很棒。你用这几个问题让自己脱离了困境……

I seem to have lost my work, what can I do?我好像弄丢了我的文件,我该怎么办?

Do you think you can restore my work please?

你觉得你能帮我恢复文件吗?

Is there anything you do?

你能做什么吗?

So two days later, and Mary has been working in earnest to complete her assignment and now she's finished, it looks like somebody else needs some help...

时间到了两天后,玛丽为了完成作业已经勤奋学习了两天,她现在完成了,而看起来某人则需要一点帮助……

Daniel: Mary, Mary... my laptop's broken and I haven't even started my assignment!

玛丽,玛丽……我的笔记本坏掉了,但是我还没开始做作业!

Mary: Your 'Macpad Fab'?

你的Mac?

Daniel: Yeah. Don't know what's happened but it won't turn on. I couldn't borrow yours could I... and that memory stick I lent you?

没错,我不知道怎么回事,它就是没法开机。我能不能用一下你的电脑……还有上次借你的那个U盘?

Mary: OK - just to help a friend. But look after it and remember to back up your work!

好吧——只是朋友之间相互帮忙。但是好好注意点,还有,别忘了保存作业!

Daniel: Yeah of course. Why wouldn't I? You sure you won't need it tonight?

是的,当然。怎么会不保存呢?你确定你今天晚上不用吗?

Mary: No, sure go ahead. I'm going for a drink with Malcolm tonight.

不用,拿去吧。我今天晚上要和马尔科姆喝一杯去。
